Abstract: Laser based communication between airborne and underwater submersible platforms has advantages over other existing methods such as radio and acoustic wave communication with regards to communication depth, trans-receiver size, power consumption etc. In this paper laser power requirement for communication between an airborne platform and underwater object is discussed. Also comparison is made between APD and PMT detectors with respect to required laser signal at receiver as a function of atmospheric visibility. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd.
